Kick counting


Anyone else counting kicks yet? Midwife told me that i should start counting, so i downloaded an app and started 2 days ago @26w1d.

So far I've managed to count about 90 kicks each day, spread over 5 sessions per day.
She easily reaches 10 kicks in 10 minutes. Then its a bit quieter, with only a kick here or there (every 2 to 5 mins) for the next 45mins. Then its quiet for about 3 hours, and then it normally starts up again.

Does this sound normal to anyone?

I had the birth options clinic yesterday as I've been really unsure as to whether to go for a VBAC or ELCS. I was sure that I wanted a VBAC to start with but as times gone on I'm not sure that I could go through the same again to end in EMCS. I was 26 hours active labour with DS and only got to 4cms - we both then had a temperature and were very poorly at the time.

So after discussing it with a midwife I think I'm leaning towards ELCS now which means little one will be born at 39 weeks so only another 11.5 weeks for me which is really scary! I've started to write lists of everything that I need to get and I've also started to organise everything by size and what they are so that OH can bring more stuff to hospital if needed. I cant beleive how quickly this is coming around now!

Ruskiegirl: you look amazing!

Bloblo: I never actively counted kicks, but my lo definitely goes through surges of a lot of activity and then it is quieter, followed by nothing for a long stretch. Sounds totally normal to me.

kiki28: not too long now. I just told my DH that I was at least only 11 wks away and his eyes about came out of his head. He still thinks we are a year away.
